This evening of artistic transformations explores how books, plays, poems and movies get turned into musicals like Wicked, South Pacific and A Little Night Music. Li’l Abner, the 1956 musical with lyrics by Johnny Mercer, was based on Al Capp’s comic strip of the same name and will be featured during this performance. Featuring Donna McKechnie (A Chorus Line), Clifton Duncan (The Play That Goes Wrong), Gabrielle Stravelli, Charlotte Maltby, Robert Petkoff (Ragtime), Eddie Cooper and Natalie Cortez. Directed by Tony nominee Marcia Milgrom Dodge; music directed by Greg Jarrett.
Followed by a post-concert reception.
